Abstract

Monteggia fractures represent approximately 1 to 2 percent of forearm fractures, whereas Galeazzi fractures represent 3 to 6 percent. The combination of these injuries in the same extremity is an exceedingly rare occurrence. We report a case of ipsilateral combination Monteggia and Galeazzi fractures in an adult patient. The patient was treated with anatomic reduction and rigid internal fixation. The radius was stabilized with a 3.5-millimeter dynamic compression plate (Synthes USA, Paoli, PA, U.S.A.) and the olecranon with tension band fixation. The radiocapitellar and distal radioulnar joint relationships were restored; the fractures healed; and the patient proceeded to obtain a satisfactory functional result at one year.
